""Everything you think you know about the Russia and Clinton investigations was a lie, it was all political espionage. I think [U.S. Attorney General William Barr] has gotten to the bottom of it."

Bats**t crazy. AG Coverup only gets to the bottome of things to cover them up for his boss. Anyone who believes otherwise is nuts.

From the article:

...Byrne issued one of his most bizarre statements yet after the market closed Monday, which is really saying something when it comes to the Overstock CEO. In confirming a story from an independent Fox News contributor and a random interview on Fox Business early Monday, Byrne claimed that in 2015 he "assisted in what are now known as the Clinton investigation and the Russian investigation."

"In fact," Byrne said. "I am the notorious missing Chapter 1' of the Russian investigation."

Byrne confirmed a personal involvement with Maria Butina, a Russian woman who is currently in jail for failing to register with the U.S. to work as a foreign agent. He said he was romantically involved with Butina, and that he served as an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Byrne said he delivered a number of documents to the Department of Justice, including emails and text messages, "regarding the origins of the Russian investigation and an FBI operation into Hillary Clinton, with which he was personally involved during the first months of 2016." ...


Mr Byrne has an interesting past when it comes to statements he has made.

But, as the article states, "...Byrne issued one of his most bizarre statements yet after the market closed Monday, which is really saying something when it comes to the Overstock CEO...."
